In social studies we are doing a simulation called discovery. During this simulation we need to act like colonist's from England trying to settle in America. Some activities along the way were making a flag, working with maps, packing our boat, planning our cargo, settling, and trading with Native Americans. This will teach us the challenges of colonists.
The discovery unit is mainly about the first settlers in America so were practically pretending we are all in that time period. Each of our groups are different colonies and we all have names for or colony that mean something. My group the By-Byes, means that we are leaving our home land [Britainn] for religious freedom.
